CatCo is getting a new pitbull.

Cougar Town vet Ian Gomez is joining Supergirl‘s Season 2 cast in the recurring role of Snapper Carr, the dry, all-knowing journalist appointed by Cat (Calista Flockhart) to serve as the editor-in-chief of CatCo Magazine, TVLine has confirmed. He believes in the free press and journalistic integrity and thinks both have been lost in this age of blogs and Twitter. He will be both an adversary and a mentor to the younger reporters (Kara included) around him.

EW.com first broke the news of Gomez’s casting.

Gomez joins a growing Season 2 guest cast that also includes Teen Wolf‘s Tyler Hoechlin as Kara’s cousin aka James’ friend in blue aka Superman aka Kal-El aka Clark Kent, and erstwhile Wonder Woman, Lynda Carter, as the President of the United States.

Supergirl‘s second season premieres Monday, Oct. 10 at 8/7.
